Stephanie Hachey, Ph.D., was recently selected as the second-place winner of the 11th Annual Nikon Small World in Motion Competition. A postdoctoral scholar with Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Professor Christopher Hughes, Dr. Hachey submitted a 10-day time-lapse video of her research on micro-tumor formation.
Dr. Hachey recorded images of a stromal and cancer cell co-culture growing on a microfluidic platform in a customized CO2 and humidity-controlled chamber. Over 10 consecutive days, she took an image of the microfluidic chamber every 15 minutes, resulting in her amazing video.
The Small World in Motion Competition is part of Nikon’s Small World celebration, recognizing 46 years of images captured by the light microscope. The competition is open to anyone with interest in microscopy and photography.
